Artists’ blockhouses in Montmédy

As you wander up the little staircases and passageways decorated with flowers between the two blockhouses or under the shady foliage, you will realise that the atmosphere here is incomparable.  
The high town looks like a film set with its charming little square soothed by the splashing fountain and surrounded by beautiful facades with cheerful, colourful shutters, which reminds some of the flavour of Provence.
The artists were spot on, they have transformed Montmédy into an “artists’ citadel”. Painters, sculptors, arts and craftspeople, etc., have decided to make their home in these blockhouses, made available by the town. There is a strong political and collective desire to fly the flag for this cultural heritage.
